: Graham Hill's Shadow

Tuesday's Documentary
The Birth of his New Racing Car Narrated by Graham Hill
' You win races by taking as few chances as possible - it's a calculated risk and you have to calculate on your car's performance and your own performance ' - GRAHAM HILL should know, twice World Champion, the oldest (at 44) Grand Prix driver still racing, with more Grands Prix under his belt than any other driver - ever. Next Saturday Graham Hill will race in his 153rd Grand Prixthe British Grand Prix at Silver-stone. He will be racing for the first time in this country his new car Shadow, described by Graham as ' a mobile fuel tank on wheels, divided into three compartments, two for fuel and one for me in the middle.'
This documentary is a personal record of weeks of intensive effort by Graham and his mechanics.
To build it he had to find the money - it can cost up to £100,000 to run one racing car for one Grand Prix season. ' It was a hell of a financial gamble; I had to turn myself into a businessman literally overnight.'

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
